Abstract:

Copy of a petition (7 June 1704) by which the inhabitants of York County petition the General Court (of Massachusetts) to subsidize their minister, Rev. Samuel Moody, and to reimburse the town for expenses incurred in maintaining Abraham Stevens, a soldier, during his illness; also a copy of his resolves (16 June 1704), of the House of Representatives (of Massachusetts), granting such relief. Copy of a petition (1705) of Lewis Bane and Joseph Hill, representatives for the towns of York and Wells, to Joseph Dudley, governor of Massachusetts, praying that the inhabitants of the province of Maine be excused from paying taxes because of the hardships created by Queen Anne's War; accompanied by the resolve of the General Court (1705) remitting the taxes of the inhabitants. Also includes a copy of a petition (16 Nov. 1779) by which the inhabitants of various towns of Lincoln County ask the General Court of Massachusetts for tax relief due to the ravages and impositions of the war and as a consequence of famine conditions resulting from the visitation of swarms of grasshoppers and other insects; also a copy of a resolve (4 May 1780), of the House of Representatives granting an abatement of fifteen thousand pounds in taxes.
